Why a #RichellPet pet gate is the perfect fit.

RL logo_GREEN BLKWith the holidays right around the corner, the kitchen is bound to be even busier than usual. In our house, the kitchen is always the hub of activity. And with so many people visiting, and cooking, it’s not always the safest place for a dog!

However, Baby always wants to be right in the middle of it all. I can’t tell you all the close calls that have happened in the kitchen. From almost stepping on her, to dangerous things dropping next to her (chocolate, knives, etc), it is not the place we want her to be. For a long time we have wanted an attractive way to keep her out of the kitchen, luckily the Premium Plus Freestanding Pet Gate with Door exists!

We were really excited when the gate arrived. We couldn’t wait to get it set up and put it to use. Baby had other ideas though, she must have known somehow that this gate was going to keep her out of the kitchen. She made sure it wasn’t easy to open that box!

Of course, once she got off the box, she had to snoop around a bit. It was VERY easy to get set up, all that needed to be done was to add the legs (just a screwdriver did the trick)!

This gate is recommended for dogs between about 6 and 33 pounds. What we love about the gate is that you can configure it in different ways. The side panels of the gate lock into place, so you can easily adjust it to fit into different parts of your home.

Another awesome feature of the gate is that it has a door, making it easy for the humans (and dog if you want) to go in and out of the gate. We love this because there are times when nothing is happening in the kitchen other than visiting with people, so Baby can still easily be a part of that.

Baby isn’t in love with it, as you can see she likes to give us sad eyes when she has to be on the other side of the gate. We on the other hand can’t imagine life without it! It’s been so wonderful to have the peace of mind that comes from being able to keep Baby out of places we don’t want her to be. There are so many uses for a gate like this too, and the kitchen is just one of them.
